- Jul 4, 2008Nick, et. al.--
The last concert I took my late father to was a performance of Saint-Saens third Symphonie ("The organ symphony")
at the refurbished Severance Hall in Cleveland
As part of the restoration, they took the pipes out from hidden behind a wall, and put them prominently along the back wall of the stage. Dad was so thrilled, he was disappointed when it ended.
I've also attended a number of recitals at Kulas auditorium at Baldwin-Wallace College
where they also have a fiarly good pipe organ.
Cleveland, like most of the "rust-belt" cities, may have it's problems, but fine food and culture are not among them.
